Pictured above is Hanyang student Khishgee Boldsukh. (Photo courtesy of Kyunghyang Shinmun ) Mongolian national, Khishgee Boldsukh (Physical Education 18) is currently building his hopes of becoming a national player for the basketball club of Hanyang University. He has been in Korea for 10 years and has passed the naturalization test to acquire Korean nationality under the name, "Lee Keun-hwi" at the end of this month. He was living with his grandmother in Mongolia, but when she passed away, he legally moved to Korea with an F-3 visa in 2009. He has been interested in basketball since his childhood. After entering the school in Saehwa Elementary School in Changwon, South Gyeongsang Province, that is when is initial love for basketball began on the school yard playgrounds hooping it up with friends. Afterwards, as a basketball player at Pallyong Middle School and Masan High School in Changwon, he played hard by scoring double digit points in each game. Last year, only 40 high school basketball players from Korea participated in the Korea Basketball League (KBL) Youth Elite Camp, where special training is given by outstanding coaches in Korea. However, he has also faced many hardships along the way. He could not participate on the court because he was a foreigner at the National Youth Sports Festival and the National Sports Festival because only athletes with Korean nationality can play in these competitions. Not having had physical training experience, he also had a hard time getting into a college athletic program. Also, his injuries were not covered by insurance, making it more costly to treat them. Nevertheless, Khishgee Boldsukh did not give up. To mark the Taegeuk symbol, he entered the department of physical education at Hanyang University this month through a special admission exam. Seeing the growth potential of Boldsukh, Hanyang helped him enter the university. With the height of 18cm and a weight of 87kg, he possesses quick feet and long-range shooting ability. Jung Jae-hoon, the director of the Hanyang University basketball team said, "he has range and accuracy shooting from long distances." Concluding a long journey of hoop dreams to Korean nationality, Khishgee Boldsukh stated, "I am interested in domestic basketball, and I will achieve my dream."

[Academics][Excellent R&D] Promoting the Global Competence of Domestic Businesses

The Korea Institute of Sustainable Economy (KISE) is one of the 18 surviving teams of the Social Science Korea (SSK) business, supervised by the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF). Being evaluated on mainly three stages, KISE has managed to surpass the former two evaluation processes by currently focusing its research upon enhancing the global competence of domestic businesses, especially from the viewpoint of distribution systems. The Social Science Korea (SSK) business refers to a research program funded by the NRF, which was first started in 2010 with the purpose of promoting research institutions that conduct research activities in the field of humanities and social science on an international basis. Whereas most research programs of the social science field are funded on a two to three year period, the SSK is a more long-term one which was targeted with ten years of research, developing into three stages: small, medium, and large-sized projects. Only the teams that pass the evaluations of the NRF upon their progress on the former stages are able to move on to the projects of the later phases. With an initial 90 teams being selected out of the 500 that applied for the small-sized studies, only 45 were able to move on to the medium-sized projects. Once again, the number was halved to 20 when advancing on to the final stage, with the current surviving teams counting up to only 18. KISE In this sense, KISE has made great progress on not only the former two phases of research, but also its current large-sized project. Professor Kim Bo-young (School of Business), the director of KISE, explained the progress that KISE has gone through the past eight years of research since 2010. Professor Kim Bo-young (School of Business), the director of the Korea Institute of Sustainable Economy (KISE), is explaining the research progress that KISE has gone through since 2010. Small-sized project When first starting the SSK project, KISE first focused upon an agenda that had both a social impact and practical implications. With a large emphasis being put on the Free Trade Agreements (FTA), especially upon the food industry at the time, KISE targeted their research towards the sustainable growth of ‘Food Security,’ ‘Food Safety,’ and ‘Global Branding Strategies.’ While giving a main focus upon China, as a major trade partner, KISE studied and compared the food safety management system of the two countries. Also giving light to the distributional process of the food industry, KISE conducted research on the strategies of marketing and positioning that the domestic businesses should implement when exporting food. KISE studied the actual products of Korea and China, and the strategies that would help them gain competence in the global market and maintain a global brand image. With the studies mainly focused upon China, during this stage, Kim and her team formed a global network with Chinese research institutions, while holding various symposiums on the subject. Medium-sized project Moving on to the medium-sized project in 2013, KISE targeted their focus more to the open global market in order to meet the goals of sustainable development. During this stage, KISE also collaborated with the Climate Change Center of Konkuk University, in order to study the steady supply and growth of food during extreme weather conditions. The studies also became more diversified with focusing on mainly four points within the global market. With health products gaining more popularity in the global markets and the industry also fiercely enhancing, KISE studied how Korean health products, such as ‘Ginseng,’ should promote themselves within this particular market. Unlike the small-sized stage, the comparatives were extended from China to other countries including the U.S., Europe, and Japan. The international consuming patterns and how Korean industries should position themselves within such global trends was also a main study of this stage. Risk communication models were also researched and compared on a global basis. With various countries all having their own model, the advantages and disadvantages of each model were given a thorough research. Cooperation with the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MOFD) was made in order to find the ideal model of handling food-related crisis. The last of the four main points, the actual infrastructure of the distribution process, was not put upon full focus during the medium phase, but was given more light in the later large-sized project. Large-sized project (Current) When entering the large-sized phase in 2016, the distribution system went through a great change under the fourth industrial revolution. For this reason, the infrastructure of the distribution process, from the former stage, became the main research in this large phase. With offline and online channels becoming united, the distribution system is going through an innovative process in which the consuming patterns are also greatly changing. Being in an early stage of adaption of such systems, KISE targeted its research towards how both consumers and industries would react to this major change. Kim is explaining how the use of big-data will be an important aspect in the new distributional system of the fourth industrial revolution. How this innovative change is being accepted in other comparative countries was a start of this particular research. Collaborating with the Japanese company ‘MUJI’ and having access to their big data on consumption patterns, KISE is further targeting their research beyond the food industry into other various consumer goods and how the domestic industries should position themselves in this rapidly changing system. With the access of big data allowing KISE to extend and deepen their research, there are still some remaining goals of the institution. According to Kim, studying the practical implications that the innovative distribution system has upon market competence, the rapidly changing consumer patterns, and the global strategies that domestic businesses should implement within this new system to maintain their global competence and brand image are the main remaining tasks that KISE should conclude during this large stage. With around two years left for the SSK project, Kim asserted that this does not designate an end to the current research that KISE is conducting. Although the SSK project did indicate a start for KISE, it does not necessarily correspond to an end. Kim also added that there will be further tasks and research that she and KISE should conduct in helping promote the global competence of domestic businesses, especially in the forms of sustainable growth.

[General]Winter Fashion on the Hanyang Campuses

December is here now, and 2018 is coming to an end. As Hanyang University greets the cold winter with beautiful lighting near the lion statue and the sign that reads: “THE BEST FOR A BETTER WORLD” in front of the Administration Building (History Museum), the coming of winter and vacation is reminded to all. Students on the Seoul and Erica campuses have also been facing the chilly winter weather lately, dressing up suitably in various fashionable ways that define themselves. Seoul Campus Kang Ji-min (Division of International Studies, 1st year) is wearing a DIS 'dobba' (topper coat). Kang Ji-min (Division of International Studies, 1st year) pursued a warm, yet comfortable style wearing a ‘dobba’ (topper coat), which is arguably the representative clothing piece for Korean university students in winter. Widely known as ‘dobba’ or ‘long padding’ in Korea, it has the symbol of the university and the student's major in needlework on the back of the clothing. Fashionable styling that Xuying (Department of Media Communication, 2nd year) made on her own stood out even from a distance away. Xuying (Department of Media Communication, 2nd year) wore what she calls a warm and comfortable clothing for class time. She wore a light khaki short padding as an outer and a pair of edge split pants (pants with splits in the bottom) with eye-catching red and white stripes. Having a big interest in fashion, Kim Yoon-sub (School of Nursing, 4th year) purchased the striking shoes from Converse when they collaborated with a Japanese brand from overseas. Kim Yoon-sub (School of Nursing, 4th year) dressed down in dark overall outfits but spiced up the look with vibrant yellow shoes. “I usually wear this turquoise knit sweater on formal occasions, but I thought it would be cool to wear it casually by layering it on top of a grey shirt.” ERICA Campus The ROTC uniform must be worn without any extra outer clothing even in winter. Yoo Jin-hwan (Department of Bionano Engineering, 3rd year) Both on the Seoul and ERICA campuses, it is easy to catch sight of people wearing suits with matching hats and holding suit cases. Despite the chilly weather, Yoo Jin-hwan (Department of Bionano Engineering, 3rd year) wore an ROTC uniform to school. “We wear our uniform twice a week when we have lectures on military science. We also wear the uniform on special occasions such as the welcome party for the freshmen, the national salute (lined up soldiers welcome the audience by holding a sword above their heads), and when a special lecture on the security of North Korea is held.” “I like to mix-match my outfit. I prefer a layered look rather than wearing a single piece of clothing.” Kim Na-hee (Department of Sports and Well-being, major in Sports in Life, 4th year) Kim Na-hee (Division of Sports and Well-being, major in Sports in Life, 4th year) rocked a style that gives the vibe of both fall and winter. She layered two seperate skirts of different materials, increasing the aesthetic style of fashion. Her fashion tip is to choose a piece of clothing or accessory that you would like to wear that day, and build on the look with other items including shoes and bags. “I try to remember the fashionable style that a passerby wore on the street or search around shopping malls on the web for my inspiration on stylings.” Park Hong-seok (Department of Applied Physics, 3rd year) Park Hong-seok (Department of Applied Physics, 3rd year) canceled out the monotonous feel of the black t-shirt that he wore by slipping on a brown cardigan. He wore blue jeans and white sneakers that pair well with the jeans. There is a famous saying by the fashion stylist and designer Rachel Zoe that goes, “style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” The colorful styles that students in Hanyang University rock on a daily basis show the diverse and independent ways that each and every student chooses to walk in every day. A big encouragement to the students’ unique individuality in life and in their sense of fashion. Kim Hyun-soo soosoupkimmy@hanyang.ac.kr Photos by Lee Jin-myung and Kang Cho-hyun

[General]Future Mobility Idea Ad-Venture Hackathon 2018 Final Presentation Day

Following the 2018 Future Mobility Idea Ad-Venture Hackathon from November 10th to 11th, 2018 (click to read), the final idea presentation took place on November 24th, 2018 at Hanyang University Commax Startup Town. Two additional weeks were given to the final teams after the hackathon for further idea development and mentoring. Out of the seven finalist teams, a first prize team and two second prize teams were selected. The Hackathon, hosted by the Center for Global Entrepreneurship, LINC Foundation, and Hyundai NGV, focused on Hanyang University students’ ideas regarding mobility in the future. The event has its significance in that the first prize team is given the opportunity to tour the Silicon Valley in January 2019. Nano3, the first prize winning team of the Future Mobility Idea Ad-Venture Hackatho, presented an idea of a passenger notification device utilizing a thermopile sensor and IoT technology called T-Saver, which can save lives in automobiles. The first prize went to the NaNo3 team, which consists of three 3rd year students from the Department of Organic and Nano Engineering: Kim Do-hyung, Choi Jae-young, and Kwon Tae-young. The team approached the field of mobility with the idea of a passenger notification device combined with a thermopile sensor and IoT technology. The team was inspired by the issue of child deaths inside automobiles during the scorching summer. If the thermopile sensor senses any vital signs in the automobile, it directly notifies connected devices. NaNo3’s team leader, Kim Do-hyung, believes that the team was able to get good evaluations because they took real issues into consideration. Prior to the final presentation day, the team had periodically received mentoring from the Center for Global Entrepreneurship and Hyundai NGV. “The additional two weeks of idea development and market realization was both mentally and physically tiring. However, receiving first prize made it all worth it,” said Kim. When asked about future plans preparing for the Silicon Valley tour in January 2019, the team answered that they consider this opportunity as an extension of the chance to learn. NaNo3 is planning to apply for a patent with T-Saver and make sales in the near future. Quickick, one of the second prize winning teams, proposed the idea of an autonomous self-driving electric kickboard rental platform. The team hopes this can become a base to transport people to a specific destination from bus and subway stations. The second prize went to two teams: Quickick and AngelsSoft. the Quickick team consists of Kim Han-bin (Division of Economics and Finance, 4th year), Choi Young-chul (Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, 4th year), and Kim Han-bom (Division of Mechanical Engineering, 2nd year). The team designed the idea of a self-driving electric kickboard rental platform to develop the idea of autonomously transporting people to desired locations from bus or subway stations. In order to prove its market availability and commercialization, the members rented electric kickboards on campus. “Our main goal during the hackathon was solely to learn. We did not expect to win but feel very fortunate that we did,” said Kim Han-bin. The members of Quickick also added that it would have been better if there were some subsidies from the school to prove commercialization. Quickick is planning to officially start their startup in winter vacation. AngelsSoft, the other second prize winning team of the 2018 Future Mobility Idea Ad-Venture Hackathon, presented the idea focusing on a drone with artificial intelligence to predict road accidents in advance. (Photo Courtesy of AngelsSoft team) The other second prize winning team, AngelsSoft, consists of four members, who became a team after taking a course together prior to the competition: Shin Kang-soo (Department of Policy Studies, 4th year), Lee Jung-woo (Division of Mechanical Engineering, 2nd year), Lee Jun-ho (Department of Physics, 2nd year), and Lee Chang-jun (Major in Bioengineering, 2nd year). AngelsSoft’s future mobility idea focuses on an artificial intelligence drone called ‘Driving Angel’ to predict road accidents and detect any road hazards that are out of the driver's sight. According to the team members, the hackathon was not only about strict competition, but also about producing ideas together on the same topic. AngelsSoft will further study the development of autonomous drones utilizing artificial intelligence. With three winning teams, the 2018 Future Mobility Idea Final Pitching Presentation Day came to an end, and two more additional weeks of idea development and mentoring proved to be effective. The competition challenged the students’ ideas in the field of future mobility and hopes to be one of the many startup idea competitions hosted by Hanyang University’s Center for Global Entrepreneurship.

[General]The 34th Economics and Finance Seminar

Around the middle of November each year, a tradition has been going on for 34 years at the College of Economics and Finance. This tradition, which students have been voluntarily maintaining by themselves, commenced once again on November 22nd of this year, marking the 34th Economics and Finance seminar which was held on the 6th floor of the Paiknam Library. The topic of the academic presentation for this year's seminar was the crisis of national pension exhaustion and its resolution plan. You could hardly find an empty seat at the international conference room in which the seminar was held. The seminar began with an opening statement from the chairman of the seminar, Lee Sang-won (College of Economics and Finance, 4th year). Then the dean of the department gave a congratulatory message to the audience. After the first session of the seminar had started, four student presentations from the academic department of the seminar preparation committee took place. After the presentations, a comment from the advising professor, Chun Young-jun (College of Economics and Finance) followed, after which, the first session concluded with final words from the chairman. The second session consisted of dinner and recreation time for students and professors from the College of Economics and Finance. The topic for the presentation is selected by taking into account the interests of students at the College of Economics and Finance and the current issues that lie with the contemporary society. The internet bank, trade war, and electric charges were among the list of potential topics for the presentation this year; however, the vote from the committee determined that the subject of national pension would be the main topic of discussion for the 34th seminar. One of the presenters is explaining the fuzzy-set ideal type analysis that they used to evaluate institutional, demographic, economic, and fiscal factors of Korea's national pension system. The presentations at the seminar covered the definition of national pension, how the national pension system is applied in Korea, and the many disputes regarding the current system. They also introduced the national pension system in operation at foreign countries to apply and supplement for the shortcomings that Korea’s national pension system holds at present. Members of the academic department focused on completing the academic journal until the 23rd of October, after which they practiced giving presentations. “Since we only had about two months to prepare for the seminar, the academic department almost always stayed up late at night to have meetings regarding the presentation. I sincerely want to thank all nine members of our department, and I would also like to give a special thanks to professor Chun Young-jun who gave us helpful guidance,” said Lee Won-seob (College of Economics and Finance, 3rd year), the director of the academic department.

[General]The Fifth Annual Sport DeMerS (Design, Merchandising, Sales) Conference

For those interested in sports, architecture, business management, design, and other related fields, the annual Sport DeMerS (a mixture from the words: design, merchandising, and sales) Conference: ‘The Next Sport Agenda’ would be an excellent opportunity to gain new insights into these fields. For each year’s conference, chosen professionals from each field of sports design, merchandising, and sales shared their knowledge and experiences. On November 23, of 2018, 150 field professionals and enthusiastic students gathered at the Olympic Gymnasium to commemorate the fifth Sport DeMerS Conference. Professionals are answering the visitors' questions during the panel discussion. Futures shared by the DeMerS-ers This year, under the subtitle: ‘The New Era of Sport DeMerS,’ three leaders shared their future vision of their fields. Kim Joo-young, the principal designer of an architectural design firm called Populous, first discussed the designing of a new model of sports stadiums that can reflect the constantly changing needs of the audience. Tracy Shim (Department of Education, '03) has advised the examination of how the sports industry will evolve according to the trend through today's agenda. Next, NC Dinos marketing manager, Tracy Shim (Department of Education, '03) shared her firsthand experiences about the issues in merchandising trends. Shim explained, “many sports teams are failing to meet the rapid changes in the merchandising trend for practical reasons. I’m sure pondering on these realistic reasons brought up in today’s conference will help the future merchandisers.” Finally, Gye Eun-young, a sports committee staff member from the Goyang City Council, presented a case on the effects of Goyang City’s brand value rising through sports as well as future plans to utilize this effect. The passionate DeMers-wannabes The three leaders were greeted by an enthusiastic response from the listeners. Kim Min-ki (Department of Sports Industry, 2nd year) said it was a good opportunity to hear about the personal experiences in the field, something only the actual workers would know. While much of the audience in attendance were from other universities, some were from the high schools. A student from Korea University, Koh Ah-ra (School of Global Sport Studies, 2nd year) said, “DeMerS is a patent advantage that only Hanyang University has. Other schools provide no opportunity to learn about DeMerS, so today was a special chance to learn about things that the school could not teach us.” During the panel discussion, visitors are questioning the three professionals. More about DeMerS The sports industry is already huge in America, Europe and Japan, and in Korea, it is also starting to be. “The Sports industry is in need of workers who not only have theoretical knowledge but also a practical understanding of the industry. Thus, it came as a surprise that there were no specialized programs to teach such insights,” said Roger Park (Department of Sports Industry), the organizer of the conference. That is why, starting from 2014, a fusional study program was started with the support of the Ministry of Education and has lasted for almost five years. During these years, numerous programs were carried out, including the conference, the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with 18 different sports organizations, the organizing of 10 global field-trips, and the opening of 10 classes with both professors and field professionals. Although the program is coming to an end next year, Park has stated that arrangements to continue some of the programs are under discussion. Roger Park (Department of Sports Industry) explains that DeMerS is an integrated concept of Design, Merchandising, and Sales and is being broadly used in relation to the major and start-ups.
